Mr. Fitzpatrick, you’re so lucky the rest of my lineup picked you up. My goodness, what a bummer of a day for the Bucs. Week 10 was chalk full of weirdness across the board. That Bucs/Redskins game wasn’t even the weirdest game of the day. (Looking at you, Titans/Patriots.) That’s the fun part about football, though. Any given week, right? Ah, well. Moving forward! Let’s get to those fantasy football streaming quarterbacks for Week 11.
Baltimore QB X
John Harbaugh and the Ravens are playing it real close to the vest this week. As far as I can tell, it would be pretty surprising at this point if Joe Flacco were to play. That being said, it’s still possible. If Flacco can’t go, Robert Griffin III or Lamar Jackson are on deck. Or both! It could be both, which would make this pretty complicated. My money’s on Griffin, personally. It might be complicated, but the Ravens are playing the Bengals this week, a tram ranked 31st against QB’s, giving up 24.2 points to the position per week. Whoever’s starting this game is going to be a solid play.
Eli Manning (NYG)
Desperation time! Manning is continuing the tradition Peyton set before retirement: gradual decline is for the birds. Sometimes, you just have to nosedive right off the cliff. Manning may be a pretty hard watch this year, but this week, the Giants are welcoming in the Buccaneers at home. The Bucs are ranked 30th against QB’s, giving up 24.1 points per week to the position. If you have a strong need at QB, give Manning some serious consideration this week.
Dak Prescott (DAL)
Oh, Amari Cooper! What a difference a bonafide star can make on any given offense. It’s not just about Cooper, necessarily. It’s just that everything seems to open up with him on the field. Even if Cooper isn’t getting a ton of looks, any defense has to account for him. That’s working out very nicely so far for the Cowboys and Dak Prescott. This week, the Cowboys are taking on the Falcons. The Falcons are ranked 29th against QB’s, giving up 23.7 points a week to the position. Saddle up!
Blake Bortles (JAC)
Blake Bortles does one of two things every single week: give you absolute garbage or carry your team. It just never seems to fail. This week, the Jaguars are at home against the Steelers. The Steelers defense has come on recently, but they’re still ranked 27th against QB’s, giving up 20.3 points a week to the position. Bortles might not play well in this game, but if the Steelers offense does what it’s capable of, Bortles will give you some good garbage time points. I’m good with him this week.
Josh Rosen (ARI)
For the second week in a row, Josh Rosen makes the streamers list. This Cardinals offense is marginally better since their coordinator switch, and Rosen flashes every week the reasons the Cardinals took him in the first round. This week, the Cardinals are welcoming in the Raiders. I don’t know that there’s another dumpster fire in the league burning quite as hot as the Raiders, on both sides of the ball. Josh Rosen should be fine this week (So will the Cardinals defense, FYI).
